Board of Directors
Meet our Board of Directors!
Members of the Board are driven by their desire to make a big difference in the lives of low-income children and families in their community. They help the Head Start and Early Head Start organization set and achieve goals for children’s healthy development and school readiness, families’ economic well-being, and community empowerment.
“Head Start has been a great program for my family; without it my children wouldn’t have been able to attend preschool. The average yearly cost of preschool is $10,000. For my family this isn’t something we could afford, especially since we have twins. Not only is this a great program for families like mine who couldn’t afford to give their children the head start before kindergarten, it’s a great community program. It doesn’t just drill the ABC’s and 123’s, it teaches your children social and life skills. They learn to make friends, and how to be self-sufficient. Kids serve themselves and clean-up after themselves. They learn manners, responsibility and kindness. It’s a great program for parent and family involvement, with many volunteer opportunities and family nights at the school. We are very thankful that this program is available to help our children succeed in the future.”
